9 New Electronic Learning Toys for Kids [Plus Reviews and Buy-it-Now Prices]

9 New Electronic Learning Toys for Kids [Plus Reviews and Buy-it-Now Prices]The children’s electronic toy market is still growing like crazy. Choosing the one that’s perfect for your kids can be confusing. I’ve put together this intro to the newest kids’ electronic learning toys out there. I’ve linked to the items at Amazon where possible so that you can learn more, and I’ve also found some great reviews on them elsewhere on the web. Plus, I’m including buy-it-now prices so you know if you’re getting a great deal.

If you’re new to my Buy-It-Now price lists, here’s what you need to know: “Buy It Now” (BIN) prices are what I consider “very good” prices on the item. They’re the best sale prices you can expect to find fairly regularly, based on records of previous sales. Don’t confuse these with the current price (although they may be the same) or the “lowest price ever” price. You may be able to beat this price if you happen onto a unusually great sale.

    Where are you finding the vtech innotab MAX for $77? If you click on it, it goes to amazon which has it for $109. Thanks!

  2. $77 is my Buy-it-now price rather than the current price. Check the post for an explanation of what that is. 🙂

    I’m curious about reviews for the kids kindle since it has yet to be released?

  4. I’m assuming Amazon sent them to journalists and bloggers before the release so there would be already be buzz about the Kindle when it came out. Very common thing to do.
